[CQ-Contest] Contesting 101 - Copy the exchange, don't assume pre-fills are correct

In recent years, after reviewing my ARRL DX contest LCRs, I note that 
1-5% of stations worked lose a QSO because they "copy" the wrong state 
for me.   They incorrectly enter PA, where I used to live and operate 
for many years, but have not operated from there in 10 years.  Where 
they get that info is baffling.  Old log history files?  An old CTY file 
that had me listed as an exception in PA, as I have a 2-call?

This year will be even more interesting to see the LCR.  This year, I 
will be operating from VA.  Not my old QTH, PA, and not my current QTH 
of almost 10 years, CO.  Please copy what is sent!
